ACT Prep Workshop in Troy

Announcement:

Do you know a student who wants to raise his or her ACT score for college admittance, for scholarship purposes, or for a myriad of other reasons? An ACT PREP Workshop is now available in the Troy/Tipp City area at the Miami County YMCA (Robinson Branch). Classes will be held June 3, 4, 5, and 6 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

We have been teaching an ACT PREP Workshop in Fort Loramie for the past 6 years to students in the surrounding area. Our course includes strategies and content knowledge, as well as time management tips, for the English, Math, Reading, and Science portions of the test. In addition, students apply what they have learned by taking a full length practice test for each of the subject areas.

Last day to register is May 22!

Cost is $200 for all four sessions, or $50 per single session

If you have any questions, please email actprepworkshop@gmail.com or text/call 419-305-0816 for more information.

College Days/Job Shadowing Procedures

A college visit is critical when deciding which school to attend. Seniors and juniors may be excused from school to visit a campus during the school day. If students are to be excused for college visits, they will need to bring a note from their parents to the Guidance Office at least one day prior stating that the student is making a college visit. The student will receive a form that the college will complete. (This form needs to be returned to the attendance office for the visit not to count as an absence.)

Job shadowing is a process that can help students make decisions about career opportunities that might be part of their future. Students will contact an individual or an agency and make arrangements to job shadow. The Guidance Office needs a note from the parents at least one day prior including the date and person who is being shadowed. The student will receive a form that needs to be signed by the person being shadowed. (This form needs to be returned to the attendance office for the visit not to count as an absence.)

Juniors and Seniors may take up to 4 days for college visits or job shadowing. Sophomores and Freshmen may take up to 2 days for job shadowing. (Administration may approve more days if deemed necessary.)

Urbana University College Credit Plus

Any students who are signed up for CP English 12 and want to earn college credit will need to apply to Urbana University CCP by June 30th.
